Good Luck to our BT Young Scientist Entrants 2018

This year, Bush Post Primary have 5 groups taking part in the BT Young Scientist competition. We wish them the very best of luck! Below is a brief description of each group's project:


L-R: Darragh Callan, Aaron Carolan

TY students Darragh Callan and Aaron Carolan have invented, developed and prototyped a GAA glove which will eliminate the risks of spraining players’ wrists and fingers. Their design is lightweight and does not add any bulk to the existing design of GAA gloves. In the near future they hope to see their product being worn by GAA clubs nationwide.



L-R: Andrew Moore, Liam O’Donnell, Patrick Johnston

Patrick Johnston, Andrew Moore and Liam O’Donnell are a trio of excellent social scientists in the making. Currently in TY, they are investigating a condition called Trypophobia, or a fear of objects containing lots of small holes. This contemporary phobia has seen a massive explosion in its number of sufferers – at least that’s what people are saying online. The group aim to find out whether or not the phobia is real, or people are just following the crowd with this viral, online fad.



L-R: Michael John Hanlon, Shane McArdle, James McArdle

TY students Michael John Hanlon, Shane McArdle and James McArdle have taken on the onerous task of investigating one of this year’s most controversial news items – the existence of a Gender Wage Gap in Ireland. With the pay packets of TV3’s and the BBC’s highest earners disclosed, along with the USA’s constant mention of women earning 78c for every dollar a man earns, the findings of this project will surely cause these scientists to attract a lot of attention from believers and non-believers alike.



L-R: Deirbhile O’Doherty, Demi Mulligan, Katie McGrath

Deirbhile O’Doherty, Demi Mulligan and Katie McGrath are three TY students who are working to open up Ireland’s eyes to the opinions its population holds on one of the least spoken about topics – abortion. Through the use of a large scale survey, the girls aim to find out the differences in opinion that men have on abortion, compared to the opinions that women hold. The conclusions drawn from their project will have a large impact on the current talks regarding holding a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Constitution.



L-R: Brendan Woods, Ciarán Murphy, Gary Murphy

5th year sports scientists Gary Murphy, Brendan Woods and Ciarán Murphy are well under way in their research and testing to discover whether wearing a fitness tracker (Fitbit, Apple Watch etc.,) has a positive effect on a person’s fitness. By looking at whether fitter people are more likely to buy fitness trackers and measuring the change in exercise routines of wearers of the trackers the group hope to come to a definite conclusion on whether or not trackers improve fitness. Maybe don’t buy that fitness tracker until the January sales, when the group’s findings will be published and on display.

Bush Post Primary 😊

Bush Gives Back

Recently sixth year students from Bush Post Primary School organised charity fundraisers in the run up to Christmas.

The first of the fundraisers saw the sixth year home economics class organise a cake sale in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital. On Wednesday the 6th of December, third year students made buns for the event and the sixth year girls transformed the Home Ec. classroom with Christmas decorations. An amazing €750 was raised from selling hot chocolate, cookies and buns. The whole class was astounded and a giant cheque was presented to Anne Dunne, a teacher in the hospital’s school, who came on behalf of Temple Street.

The week before Christmas on Wednesday the 20th of December, sixth year student, Seána McGuinness, organised a Christmas jumper day for the entire school. Students came in dressed in Christmas jumpers, tops and ties. Money was collected at the front door my members of sixth year. From this fundraiser a further €730 was donated from the kind hearted students of Bush. The chosen charity this time was Féileacáin, the Irish for butterfly, who work to provide support for parents affected by the death of a baby during or after pregnancy.

The students are delighted by the generous response from the school in raising nearly €1500 in only two weeks and they would like to thank everybody for their support.
